Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This deep amber hued ale takes it’s inspiration from Germany while still nodding to the Belgian farmhouse tradition. The base is comprised of German two-row, wheat, Cara-Munich, and roasted barley. Generously hopped with a blend of Perle, Spalt, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh and fermented with a rustic Belgian farmhouse ale yeast. These elements together provide a melange of earth and fruit aromas backed with hints of caramel with a dry clean finish.

pours a dark toffee/caramel color with a fingers worth of khaki head. Smells of dark bread, caramel, spices, and Belgian yeast. Bready malt and caramel backbone with spices and a light amount of cocoa and roast. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty decent amber saison, but not spectacular.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 8/26/13.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, toast, earth, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice caramel and spice presence all around.
